Where is Snow Park Oze Tokura?

Oze Tokura is the most northerly of the Katashina ski resorts and is located 11km north of the centre of Katashina Village. The Oze Tokura Onsen Village is located 2km down the road from the ski resort.

Oze Tokura Ski Resort is located in the north eastern region of the Gunma Prefecture in the Kanto region, northeast of Numata City.

Driving to Oze Tokura

Driving to Snow Park Oze Tokura is the easiest way to get there because it’s a long way from major train stations, unless of course you’re on a guided multi-resort tour. Oze Tokura is located just off Route 401, about 36km northeast of the Numata Interchange on the Kan-etsu Expressway from Tokyo. The telephone number for GPS navigation is 0278-58-7511. Parking is free and it’s an easy walk from the car park to the ticket office and lifts.

Bus from Tokyo to Katashina

The Katashina Snow Express is a daily bus from Tokyo Station (with courtesy pick ups from Kamata) to the Katashina ski resorts.

Train

You can get a train to the Jomo Kogen train station on the Joetsu Shinkansen line, or Numata Station on the Joetsu line, which is a bit fiddly in itself. From these two train stations there are occasional bus services to Oze Tokura, but the bus trip takes a long time.

Getting Around

If you plan to stay in the Katashina region for more than one day you’ll want to have a rental car, unless you’re on a tour with a guide to drive you around. You’ll need wheels to get between your Katashina accommodation and Oze Tokura and to other nearby ski resorts, and if you’re accommodation doesn’t include meals in your plan, you’ll also need a car to go out for dinner.
